NOW

 

It’s a funny thing. NOW.

It’s in the moment where I like to be.

You’ve come to the right place.

 

Here are some happenings so far in 2016.

 

 

FILM

 

~ My gospel themed song “A Better Day Will Come” appears in the feature film “The Masked Saint”. The film was just released to over 800 cinemas in North America this January. My thanks to Gary Granstaff, (Exec. Producer) and Director Warren P. Sonoda for including the song in the movie.

 

 

~ Another film I recently worked on, although in a non-music capacity, was Danny Perez’ “AntiBirth”, shot in Sudbury, Canada, and recently debuted at The Sundance Film Festival.

 

Here are a few reviews.

~ Toronto’s House Of David Gang is releasing their “Reggae Warrior Remix” - Remixes, Re - Grooves, Reconstructions of the original Reggae Warrior tracks released on NuFunk Concerts/Records. I have a song I co-wrote on it with the late drummer Raffa Dean & Nelson B.C.’s Gisto, called “Come With Me (New Brunswick Song)”. We had a fun time writing and recording it out East whilst on tour, in a beautiful farmhouse in the country provided by Jonas Colter (Evolve Festival Founder).

~ Mike Severin (aka Sev Micron) was the original drummer of Toronto’s TULPA, a band I formed with him and my brother John. A few years back we wrote a song that has recently come to light called “Feel So” with me playing bass, Sev on drums and keys, and longtime friend George Guerra on lead guitar.

 

It’s a nice little ditty, you can listen to it here:

~I’ve been writing like crazy, working on the next album of songs and have been recently collaborating with some other people on new writing projects. Keep tuned for more details coming up.

 

 

Thanks for tuning in!

 

Chris B.
